Alloy Choice

Am looking to buy a Type R in the near future and was wondering if anyone had put 18" Baldes or Storms on their Type R? The stock alloys are OK and the Rage's look pretty good too, but have seen a Type S with 18" Blades and it looked awesome. Am hoping switching from stock 18"s to Blades would be much cheaper than going for the Rage's as I wouldn't have to buy tyres and could possibly sell the stock Type R alloys on Ebay or this forum.

Any thoughts?

I think the blades are the best alloys for the Civic, they look fantastic!

Yeah they look great Guitaralmond! Shame they discontinued the blue. The one I saw was in the car park at my local dealers which was NHB with some body kit additions too I think.

Great choice, they look fantastic on a NHB CTR, especially with the red calipers.

Wow, that looks really good.

I might consider getting a set of those instead of rages since I'd like to change my CTR's standard rims and dark rims tend to go well with silver cars.

They look good mate, much better than the standards anyway but not a touch on the rage
